Andy Murray has been on a roll and he is continuing his good form as he heads into the third round of the French Open. This time around he will be taking on Ivo Karlovic in a game where the Brit should dominate. That being said this is a game on clay and with a spot in the next round up for grabs, anything can happen.
Ivo Karlovic in the 27th seed and this is the stage of the tournament where the Croatian can really make his name. That being said, he is coming of a 5 set win and that will test his fitness in this game. With that in mind, he is a professional athlete and come his day he has all the potential to cause an upset.

His opponent is also coming of a 5 set win but the problem for Karlovic is that his opponent is Andy Murray. Murray is known for his fitness and after a bit of a scare in the last round, the Brit will try hard to win this game easily. We predicted that Murray in his last game would have to work hard but this time around I think he will win it with ease. I think Murray wins 3 sets to 0 and does it with comfort.
We are getting a short price on this so betting needs to be done with caution. Karlovic could easily win a set but betting on that seems way too risky. I think betting on players like Murray this early in a tournament is not a good play so I would avoid betting on this game. If you are adamant to invest some money then Murray to win 3-0 is probably your best option but remember the price you are getting is not great.
